If you’ve always desired to take flight for your daily commute, this is the home for you. It’s an opportunity to live in a private aviation community known as Pine Shadows Airpark in North Fort Myers, FL, for $3.9 million.
The property, which the listing boasts was inspired by European castles, contains a total of seven bedrooms and 7.5 baths in its 7,666 square feet. But it’s the aviation-related amenities that truly distinguish this property and its 4.2-acre lot.
There are three main structures on the property: the main home, a guesthouse, and a hangar. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom main house is perfectly luxe, with a sprawling entertaining kitchen and bar, two living rooms, and a formal dining room to host as many guests as your soirees may require. Hanging jellyfish and blue lights under the counters add a more whimsical touch. There are also four dishwashers for all the dishes those guests will dirty.
Hangar and plane
After an elaborate dinner party, you can continue the festivities with the help of the 2,000-bottle wine cellar and attached tasting room lined with exposed brick. Or retire to the rich navy and gold movie theater, the game room with painted ceiling, or library.
When the party’s over, there’s a custom two-headed shower in the master bath, as well as an office lined with Norman windows along the walls. Italian tile, stone and marble accents, solid wood doors, and a curving staircase all contribute to the lord of castle atmosphere.
The house backs onto roughly 6,000 feet of outdoor living space, which you can also survey from the second-story marble balcony perched atop spiraling columns. The highlight is a waterfall pool surrounded by decorative rocks, but if it’s slightly too chilly to swim, residents can still enjoy the outdoor kitchen with barbecue, pizza oven, and bar area.
The guesthouse, meanwhile, contains two bedrooms and one bathroom. There’s also a small chapel building on the property complete with pews and stained-glass windows if you need to reflect on your success.
An 80-by-80-foot steel hangar provides aircraft storage space along with a one-bed, one-bath au pair quarters; kitchen; bar; and a two-room private day spa. Massage therapist and esthetician are not included, though you could presumably fly them in with the help of your helipad. Up, up, and away!
